Summary
A freak cattle stampede throws a young girl visiting her uncle's ranch into a life-or-death struggle with a local outlaw gang! Young Hope Farman has arrived from the East for a visit with her uncle Nate at his Rancho del Encanto. She is being driven to the ranch when a cloud of dust appears on the horizon, filled with thundering hooves, as a cattle stampede storms toward them! In the chaos that ensues, Hope is thrown from her seat and into the path of the herd. She is rescued at the last second by Channing, a mysterious man who was born on the desert and has lived there ever since, a man who knows its secrets, including the whereabouts of the hideout of the notorious outlaw Mendicott and his gang of thieves. Hope discovers that the stampede was started by Brood, the foreman at her uncle's ranch. When he's fired by Nate he reacts violently, swearing he'll back. Brood soon makes good on that promise, returning with an offer to buy the ranch, but it occurs to Nate that the offer obviously comes not from Brood but from Mendicott. When Nate refuses the offer, Brood and his gang kidnap Hope. Now, Channing will try to save Hope's life for the second time, while Nate prepares himself and his farm for the battle of his life. Man of the Desert is an edge-of-your-seat Western thriller from a master of the genre
